Ancient Greek Architecture and Art
Caitlin has been learning about Ancient Greek Architecture and Art, this week, for History class. Today, she painted some Greek architecture in a painting called Sunrise Over the Sea. We got the lesson through Lesson Pathways, but Crayola.com had the art instructions. You can see her painting came out pretty good. Youtube has a documentary on the Greeks, and I think I will have both kids watch it, when Caitlin finishes learning about the Greeks. DJ is studying the Middle Ages, but he will appreciate the video too. I will share it later, when we get closer to it. I am trying to keep up with school, before Christmas break, so we can take off our full three weeks I planned to take off. We will be doing two different hiking trips and Busch Gardens over the Christmas break. Plus we are having a Polar Express pajama Christmas Party. DJ will be making his homemade hot chocolate, and I am making the popcorn. I am still thinking about decorations, and of course we are watching the movie, The Polar Express. The next two weeks are crazy busy, but I will try to post the fun things we do, not the mundane textbook work. DJ has to finish his formal letter, for Language Arts, writing a Legend for History class, and a book report. All this week, probably tomorrow, lol. The book he started to read online, A Separate Peace, went away, so now I have to wait for the library to tell me they have it. I am stopping over there tomorrow to jog their memory. He will be far behind if I don't get it soon.
